49ers | Not Looking Good for Hearst

SportsLine.com reports 49ers RB Garrison Hearst's career may be in jeopardy. "This is an ominous development,'' general manager Bill Walsh stated. "It's just hard to believe any difficulty could occur from this. The injury was healed. He's been told to stay on crutches.'' There is now fear that avascular necrosis (the death of a bone or part of it due to lack of circulation) may have set in. In a similar injury situation, RB Bo Jackson's career was ended. RBs Charlie Garner and Harvey Williams will be in town tomorrow for a workout. "We're not suggesting he (Hearst) can't play,'' Walsh said. "We just want to cover ourselves.'' Team physician Michael Dillingham said the team is going to seek other opinions.
